Trump administration rule could hurt trans patients - Vox
The new rule, proposed last week, rolls back protections instituted by the Obama administration, which in 2016 released rules barring health care workers and insurance companies from discriminating against patients on the basis of gender identity. By getting rid of those protections, the Trump administration rule would allow doctors to refuse to provide transition-related care — or to refuse to see transgender patients at all, even for routine care like flu shots.

#WontBeErased: reports of US trans policy shift spark protests | World news | The Guardian
According to the New York Times (NYT), a memo from the Department for Health and Human Services (HHS) calls for a tightening of the legal definition of sex under the Title IX law, which bans gender discrimination in government-funded education programmes, according to “a biological basis that is clear, grounded in science, objective and administrable”.

“Sex means a person’s status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth,” the NYT reported the memo as saying. “The sex listed on a person’s birth certificate, as originally issued, shall constitute definitive proof of a person’s sex unless rebutted by reliable genetic evidence.”

Warning over psychiatrists amid mental health ‘crisis’ - The Scotsman
The number of psychiatrists working in Scotland’s NHS has increased by just four in the past five years amid warnings of an “enormous gulf” developing in the treatment of physical and mental health. The Royal College of Psychiatrists said the number of consultant psychiatrists in Scotland has risen by less than 1 per cent since 2012, compared with a more than 20 per cent rise in consultants who treat physical illnesses. Details emerged as former Prime Minister Gordon Brown warned of a “full-blown mental health emergency” in Scotland.

New Study Finds That Transgender Identity Is Not A Mental Disorder
The research, led by the National Institute of Psychiatry, interviewed 250 transgender people and found that it is not a mental disorder as once believed. Apparently, distress and impairment are the two essential characteristics of a mental disorder, and they found transgender people can experience some distress but not because they are transgender, but because of social rejection and violence.

Wie Wissenschaft und Fortschritt unser Menschenbild verändern - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Wissenschaft hat auch zum Thema Homosexualität Fortschrittliches beizutragen. Für Homosexualität - und für Bisexualität - gilt das gleiche wie für Linkshändigkeit: Sie ist angeboren. Möglicherweise gibt es Menschen mit einer homo- oder bisexuellen genetischen Disposition, die aufgrund von Umwelteinflüssen ein Hetero-Leben führen, aber in einem Punkt sind sich die einschlägig forschenden Wissenschaftler einig: Die Gene - und vielleicht pränatale Hormone - spielen eine zentrale Rolle für die sexuelle Orientierung.

Paradoxerweise nennen gerade diejenigen, die Schwule und Lesben am stärksten ablehnen, Homosexualität gerne "widernatürlich". Auch hier hilft die Wissenschaft: Homosexualität ist durch biologische und physiologische Vorgänge bedingt und damit eben genau das: natürlich. Widernatürlich ist dagegen der Versuch, homosexuelle Menschen mit Umerziehungsmethoden zur Heterosexualität zu bekehren. Weit schlimmer als das, was man all den Linkshändern angetan hat. [...] Religiosität ist kein guter Ratgeber

The disputed legacy of There’s Something About Miriam: how the “trans trick” lives on
Although the “twist” was blindingly obvious to viewers from the outset, the contestants were never told during filming and many would kiss Miriam on camera. Subsequently, following the completion of the show, each sued producer Endemol for conspiracy to commit sexual assault, defamation and personal injury due to the “psychological and emotional damage” they had suffered; all six eventually settled for an undisclosed fee. One report suggested they’d been paid as much as £500,000 each. [...] Not everybody agrees with his assessment. Or, as equality campaigner Paris Lees tells the New Statesman: “He’s talking out his arse! All Miriam did was tell trans people: ‘We will put you in a swimsuit and sexualise you, but we will laugh and feel ashamed about it afterwards!’ [...] Yet Lees and others were – and still are – deeply disappointed by the show. She says that for thousands of transgender kids watching, the message was that the only way they could gain value in the world was to be sexualised or made into “pariahs”. Such TV and film portrayals are the reason why so many transgender people turn to sex work, she adds.

“transsexual.”

“We don’t use that anymore,” they said. This was backed up by a young cisgender man, a UCLA queer studies major, who declared that the term was objectionable because it “medicalizes” trans people and inappropriately ties recognition of someone’s genital status — which is private — to their gender identity. So it was not only archaic but offensive.

One respondent, who had spoken to the Trans Mental Health Study, stated that “tabloid stories about trans people are often exploitative, invasive of privacy, inaccurate, irrelevant or intended to drum up transphobia in their readers… [Reading these] shows how hostile many people are to trans people in current society.”
According to the report, 67% of trans people have reported being a victim of a hate crime, which is much higher than among gay and bisexual people.
80% of transgender people experience anxiety before accessing hospitals due to insensitivity, misgendering and discrimination, the report cites.

An Open Letter to Those Praising the New York Times “Tomboy” Piece
Trans youth are dying because society is telling them, telling us, that we are fake. Trans women and femmes of color are being murdered because the impulse is to believe that trans-ness is fraudulent, that our bodies are threats. A white young person being asked questions about her gender is not a new problem and it is not a problem that should be blamed on trans people or trans affirmative shifts in society or medicine.
Midway through the piece, the author offers the most incoherent part of her argument explaining of her child, “She is not gender nonconforming. She is gender role nonconforming.” What does this mean? What is the difference?

Hannah is using a puberty-blocking implant and getting ready to embark on the path of developing a female body by starting estrogen. Ten years ago most doctors would have called this malpractice. New data has now made it the protocol for thousands of American children.

Bathroom predator myth defeats transgender rights in New Hampshire.
But in the end, the bathroom predator myth still won out. House Republican leadership insisted that a trans nondiscrimination law would somehow allow sexual predators to rape women and children in public bathrooms. And anti-LGBTQ advocates overwhelmed legislators over the weekend with anti-trans rants, alleging that a vote for the bill would lead to more sexual assault. The bathroom predator myth, of course, is wholly fictional, a canard concocted to dress up religious objections to trans rights in secular pretext. Yet by sheer force of repetition, activists have managed to convince legislators that this fabrication might be a legitimate concern, introducing ersatz ambiguity into the discussion—and giving representatives cover to oppose trans rights.

Trump rescinds transgender bathroom rules from Obama era - BBC News
Meanwhile, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten called the move a major setback for trans rights.
"By rescinding these protections, the Trump administration is compromising the safety and security of some of our most vulnerable children," she said.
"Reversing this guidance tells trans kids that it's OK with the Trump administration and the Department of Education for them to be abused and harassed at school for being trans." &! https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/feb/22/transgender-students-bathroom-trump-obama

Hate-Speech in der Schule - "Demütigung ist wie körperliche Gewalt"
"Demütigung ist wie körperliche Gewalt" /// Erst im Netz, dann auf dem Schulhof: Beleidigungen, Drohungen und auch tätliche Angriffe nehmen zu, der Ton ist rauer und aggressiver, beklagen Lehrer wie Schüler. Es gibt einen Zusammenhang zwischen Hassreden und Gewalt - er beginnt im Gehirn. [...] Auf die Auswirkungen von Ausgrenzung und Demütigung auf unser Gehirn weist der Neurobiologe Joachim Bauer von der Uniklinik Freiburg und Autor des Buches "Schmerzgrenze" hin: Das Gehirn stufe verbale Gewalt wie körperlichen Schmerz ein. Wem die Anerkennung entzogen, wer systematisch niedergemacht und entwertet werde, werde irgendwann krank. Das Sprachzentrum und Netzwerke, wo Handlungen geplant werden, hingen eng zusammen - wo viel Hass-Sprache ist, dort erhöhe sich das Risiko, dass irgendwann auch zugeschlagen wird. //&! Extremismus
